Lightweight and Low Profile
Newport Capo

The G7th Newport 12 String guitar capo is specifically designed for 12 string acoustic and electric* guitars and combines a flip-lever action, a low-profile shape that doesn't get in the way of your fretting hand and our patented Compensated String PadTM.

The Compensated String PadTM allows all 12 strings to fret at the same time and under the same tension, dramatically reducing tuning problems whilst fretting all 12 strings securely and accurately.

*Not suitable for Rickenbacker 12 string guitars due to the reversed octave string positions.
